I cancelled service with one of the major carriers, brand "T", due to lack of coverage at my residence. I wasn't sure whether I wanted to be locked into another 2-year contract, so I got this phone to do a "trial run" of AT&T service coverage. My previous phone was a Samsung Galaxy SIII. I really, REALLY like this little "dumbphone." Sure, it doesn't have all the apps & features of a true "smartphone" but, it handles phone calls & texting just fine. If I want to play on the internet, I have a tablet and a laptop computer to use. Also, it connected to the Sync system in my car & handles all those functions well, including the "voice dial" command built into Sync. Truth be told, this LG connects to the Bluetooth in my car quicker than the Galaxy S ever did. The build quality of this phone belies its' low price. It feels much more substantial than did my Galaxy S. Call quality is very good, also. I do miss the "swype" function on the Android OS of the Galaxy, when texting. At least this phone has a full "virtual" keyboard, so none of the prehistoric repetitive pressing of the number keys, to form words. Battery life is phenomenal, compared to a "smartphone" - I've had this LG on continuously for 3 days now & still have 3/4 battery life remaining. I'd usually have to recharge my Galaxy before a full day was over. IF I decide to go to AT&T, I only wish I could "port" this phone to their service. I'm not sure if this is possible, even though this phone operates on the AT&T network. For the price, I can't imagine being able to beat the usability of this phone. The "triple minutes" is an added bonus.
